Once a year, several brewers of German Lager’s produce their limited edition “Oktoberfest beers”. In the “official” Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany, there are only 6 beers served in the massive Oktoberfest tents.
They are, Augustiner, Hacker-Pschorr, Hofbrau, Lowenbrau, Paulaner, and Spaten. However, Oktoberfest beers are arriving on the scene yearly as miro-breweries to corporate brewers try to find a place in the outside “Oktoberfest market”.
Oktoberfest is one of the largest folk festivals in the world with over 6 million visitors that ascend on Munich Germany annually. A market that brewers globally would like to cash in on.
Another Oktoberfest is quickly approaching, and you will need to stock up on your German lagers because unfortunately, with the pandemic still in full swing, the massive Oktoberfest celebration in Munich has been canceled for the 2nd year in a row.
Before Covid-19 the celebration has only been canceled six times since 1810. The first time was the war against Napoleon in 1813, the second was during the cholera epidemic in 1854, the third time was during a resurgence of cholera in 1873, and the fourth and fifth were during the 1st and 2nd World Wars. A celebration over 200 years strong only stops for the most serious of times.
